Has anyone been sucessful in getting MMF white or do I need to face facts and order Satin Ice? I have seen buttercream turn whiter w/ adding a faint amount of purple, will this work w/ MMF too?
Are the homemade fondant recipes (not MMF) w/ glucose, corn syrup, glycerin etc. all the same off white color as MMF or are they white?
I've made MMF twice and it's always white. What color are you getting?
I use white marshmellows, white PS, white crisco and light colored corn syrup.
I think the general rule is violet to get rid of yellow tint to make white. I've never tried it but I think it applies to anything.
Well, I thought my MMF was white too until I set the all white wedding cake topper next to it and suddenly ahh, not so white! kwim? Now I'm rethinking this. I didn't want to purchase fondant since this wedding cake is my gift to them and having 20lbs of fondant shipped to my home is maybe more than I wanted to swing. I'll buy fondant if I have to but was hoping to make it from scratch.
Well, I'm back to answer my own question! Yes, Yes, YES and a happy dance!- Yea! Adding a tiny bit of violet helped to make my MM fondant whiter. Downside is I've already hand made 300 (3/8") pearls (Earline's method) that I'll need to do over in this new color but hey!...I'm thrilled I could overcome the problem!!!
Yay! Bummer you have to redo 300 pearls though.
